Ole Miss bolsters defense with addition of two transfers

Ole Miss has had an active week in the transfer market, adding two players on the defensive side of the ball.

First up, the Rebels went north of the border to secure the commitment of Tavius Robinson, a 6’8 240-pound DE from Ontario’s University of Guelph. Robinson told Yancy Porter with 24/7 Sports that he spoke with several schools, including Ohio State, Michigan, Washington State, Southern Miss and others, before deciding to commit to Ole Miss.

Robinson will be immediately eligible and attempt to contribute to a defensive line that lost key pieces from 2019 with the departure of Benito Jones and Josiah Coatney. Senior DEs Tariqious Tisdale and Ryder Anderson return to the Rebel roster in 2020.

Tuesday, Navy LB Jacob Springer announced that he’ll finish his college career at Ole Miss. Springer will have to sit out the upcoming season unless he can get a waiver approved by the NCAA.

At the Naval Academy, Springer played the ‘striker’ potion, which acts as a hybrid safety/linebacker and led the Midshipmen in sacks in 2019 with 8 — tied for third-most in a single season at Navy.

The 6’1 205-pound striker was named to the second-team All-AAC in 2019.

For this upcoming season, TE Kenny Yeboah, a grad transfer from Temple, will be immediately eligible while former UGA S Otis Reese may have to sit out due to NCAA transfer rules.
